Hip music for babies

Check out the Putumayo Kids CDs for something more groovy than your average nursery rhymes compilation.

If you're worried that your singing isn't up to scratch but you can't bear those shrill nursery rhymes compilations you can get for long car journeys, why not try some truly funky music on your baby or toddler?

Many a music-mad parent will assure you that their children love their taste in heavy rock or indie pop music, but children also love the melodies and stories of nursery rhymes. Usually, these are the domain of tapes for the car, sung by high-pitched ladies or sickly-sweet sounding children. However, a company called Putamayo Kids have come up with a wonderful collection of CDs bringing together children's songs and rhymes from around the world.

From African Playground to French Playground, the colourfully designed albums provide something jolly that even mum and dad won't be ashamed of!
Their latest album is Reggae Playground and includes traditional and pop songs from the Caribbean and around the world, all given a reggae treatment by the likes of Johnny Dread, Toots And The Maytals and Rita Marley.

If you fancy checking out the range of albums on offer, visit the lovely Putumayo website.
